Fujifilm just announced the official launch of X RAW STUDIO, a new RAW conversion software that aims to speed up the conversion of RAW files by offloading the processing to a connected Fujifilm camera.
“Users can store conversion settings or copy settings between images, and variable image processing conditions can be adjusted in the same way as in-camera RAW conversion,” Fujifilm says.
Using both Mac and PC computers, photographers can do single or batch conversions of RAW files after connecting a Fujifilm camera. Settings for the image processing can be adjusted just like with the in-camera RAW conversions of those cameras.
“All conversion parameters available through in-camera RAW conversion are adjustable, enabling photographers to monitor results in a preview window when changing settings,” Fujifilm says.
To help you work faster, conversion profiles on RAW images can be saved, loaded, and copied. And to give you a better view of what your adjustments are doing to your result, the program has a side-by-side before-and-after comparison feature.
